Baltimore,  MD  – ADLINK  Technology,  Inc.,  a leading  global provider of trusted testing and measurement products, announces the release of its USB-1900 Series and USB-2401  USB DAQ modules.  Equipped  with built-in signal conditioning,  the USB-powered  Plug and Play  USB DAQ modules  deliver easy connection  and accurate  results for both portable  measurement  and machine  automation  applications.  Featuring built-in  Multi-function USB DAQ Modulessignal  conditioning,  ADLINK  USB DAQ  modules  enable  direct  measurement  of most frequently  applied  signal sources, which reduces manpower requirements and associated development costs while increasing overall accuracy.

All  of  ADLINK’s   USB  DAQ  modules  feature  USB  power  and  removable  screw-down  terminals  for  simplified  device connectivity,  and a multi-functional  stand for fast and easy desktop, rail, or wall mounting. Additionally,  a lockable USB cable  secures  connectivity.  The  USB DAQ  modules  also provide  device  ID setting  by a rotary  control  for convenient identification of the active module in multiple-connection  configurations.

“ADLINK, having already developed and released over one hundred DAQ and DIO modules to the market, is pleased to leverage our accrued analog design expertise into the new  USB DAQ modules,” said Catherine Wu, Sr. Product Director of ADLINK’s Measurement Product Center. “ADLINK  USB DAQ modules provide comprehensive advantages and a cost- effective  option.  Our combined  features  make  them  not only ideal for users  requiring  portable  measurement  in basic research  and  data  monitoring  scenarios,  but  also  for  machine  automation  applications  with  limited  space  for  I/O expansion.”

ADLINK’s  USB DAQ collection offers the USB-1900 series, consisting of USB-1901 and USB-1902 models of 16-bit 250 kS/s  DAQ  modules.  Also  in the  series  is the  USB-1903,  with  additional  built-in  precision  current-to-voltage  resistors allowing direct measurement of current signals from 0 to 20 mA. Rounding out the  USB DAQ category is the USB-2401, a
24-bit four-channel  simultaneous-sampling  universal DAQ module supporting sampling rates up to 1.6 kS/s and a more flexible signal conditioning  circuit such as voltage, current, strain, load cell, thermocouple,  and RTD measurement.  The USB DAQ line is ideally suited for easily accomplished deployment and superior accuracy when measuring temperature, stress, strain, and other factors in diverse applications.

The  USB DAQ modules include ADLINK’s free U-Test utility, allowing direct operation and testing of all functions with no requirement  for coding  or programming.  Driver  support  is provided  for Windows  7/Vista/XP,  in both 32-bit  and 64-bit versions, and 3rd party software support accommodates LabVIEW & MATLAB.
